In some of the most romantic celebrity news of the year so far, Kate Garraway is planning a second wedding to her husband of 15 years, Derek Draper.
In her recent cover interview with YOU magazine, Kate revealed that her husband fell in love with her all over again while watching her on Im A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in November last year.
Kate told YOU: ‘When Derek came to meet me after I left the jungle, he was planning to propose to me again [with the ring, in front of the TV cameras], but he got overwhelmed and burst into tears. The kids leapt out and surprised me and Darcey said, “Oh Dad – you didn’t do it!” So he got down on one knee and proposed… and I said yes, obviously.’
And now Kate has now revealed their rather surprising choice of wedding planner – her thirteen year old daughter, Darcey. Speaking to Prima magazine, Kate said: ‘We’re going to have a second wedding and Darcey’s going to plan the whole thing. She’s 13, so it could be very interesting, but we’ll see.’
She also voiced worries that her daughter might be hoping to make her look like one of her favourite celebrities. ‘I think she will probably want me to look like Kendall Jenner on the day which is going to be tough… I would love to look like Kendall Jenner as well, so good luck with that!’
While most celebrities stick to classy, suave affairs for a wedding, with a thirteen year old at the helm, anything is possible with this event! Personally we can’t wait to see what a wedding organised by a teenage girl looks like.
The couple married back in 2005 after meeting through a mutual friend, and it seems the romance has very much stayed alive for the couple.
Last year Kate posted a picture on her Instagram of flowers and what appears to be a jewellery box, with the caption: ‘Husband come up trumps again – just when I thought he had forgotten our anniversary – came home to this. Bless him. Although in his message inside the card he reminds me that 15 years ago marrying him was the best decision I ever made! 🙄’.
